Contribution caps to increase from 1 July 2024

Following the release of the latest Average Weekly Ordinary Time Earnings (AWOTE) index, the expected increase to the contribution caps from 1 July 2024 has been confirmed.

As a result, from 1 July 2024:

  • The standard Concessional contribution cap will increase from $27,500 to $30,0001.
  • The Non-concessional contribution cap, which is expressed as 4 times the standard concessional contribution cap, will increase from $110,000 to $120,0002.
  • The maximum Non-concessional cap available, under the Non-concessional contribution bring-forward provisions, will increase from $330,000 to $360,0003.
  • The Total Superannuation Balance Thresholds, used to determine the maximum amount of bring-forward Non-concessional contributions available to an individual, will also be adjusted.

The Non-concessional contribution caps and thresholds are summarised in the table below:
